I have a lot of asks that I need to answer! I couldn’t find a good time to sit down and do it, sorry!
These are a little out of order:
Anon 1 - Yes! I do like Eremin. I like most Armin ships. You may notice this but when I have a favorite character in a series I just ship them with everyone. Thank you!
Anon 2 - T….thank you? 8U
Anon 3 - oh hoho thank you! <3
Anon 4 - Sweet! Maybe you’re my doppelgänger. Or maybe….I’m the doppelgänger??
Anon 5 - Why on earth would you want to see that!! haha
Anon 6 - I’m not sure which meme this is…I’m not very good at replying to memes. If I see one like this around, I might try it though.
Anon 7 - I think they both admire the qualities in the other that they feel they themselves lack. Jean is sure of himself even in his weakness and can easily lead and understand others. Armin is quick-thinking and determined. Jean has a certain charisma and charm that Armin lacks and Armin has incredible ambition that can inspire others. Even the qualities that they might not understand about the other probably have some intrigue, like Jean’s brashness and Armin’s broodiness. They tend to balance each other well. I think they are growing closer due to them both understanding the other’s weaknesses. Armin said in one of those interviews that he didn’t want to reveal who/if he had a crush on anyone because he felt it could be exploited. However, he has saved Jean 3? 4? times now though, putting both himself and his psyche in direct danger, going against the ideals he is trying to uphold. I think Jean is a weakness of Armin’s, for better or worse.
Anon 8 - Hmmmm, I must admit I’m not a big AU person. Armin would probably be a cute, studious, nerd who gets bullied quite a bit. Eren and Mikasa are popular for various reasons and people probably have trouble seeing why they are so close to Armin. Jean would be a fairly popular guy, despite not having any super close allegiances with anyone. Armin lives with his Grandfather in a small house, Jean would be firmly middle/upper middle class. Maybe they happen to cross each other by Eren getting into trouble and Armin standing up for him, causing Jean to take notice that Armin might not be what he assumed. Maybe Armin had a crush on Jean but thought nothing would come of it so he resigned himself to nothing.
janedirkk- Ah….Thank you! But I am just a grown-ass adult who draws silly comics, nothing more. ;A;
maxibrun - Thank you for letting me know about this! Unfortunately facebook is pretty useless about reporting this kind of thing so there’s not much I can do…(It told me to just send the user a message, which I’m not going to do with my personal facebook, so eh…)
